Increase Your Brain Power by Walking

The simple and natural act of walking can help you to increase your brain power. 

Research into this area has proven the people who walk greatly benefit their brains. Walking increases blood circulation. At the same time that blood circulation is increasing, glucose and oxygen are reaching the brain in increased amounts. This occurs because walking is a low impact exercise that is enjoyable and healthy.

When you exercise with fast paced movements your body is going to absorb that extra glucose and oxygen so it isn’t available for the brain to receive. The additional oxygen that goes to your brain is a great way to help you reduce levels of stress. 

Individuals that walk on a regular basis have better concentration and they seem to be more receptive to learning new things.
